THE BOOK OF BOBA FETT Rumored To Feature The Live-Action Debut Of Cad Bane
Notorious bounty hunter Cad Bane has been a staple of the animated corner of the galaxy far, far away for many years, but could the fan-favourite character be set to make his live-action debut in TBOBF?
Cad Bane was introduced in The Clone Wars many years ago, and has since gone on to become something of a staple of the animated corner or the galaxy far, far away. Fans have been wondering if they'd ever see the ruthless bounty hunter make the jump to live action, and a new rumor claims that Bane will appear in upcoming Disney+ series, The Book of Boba Fett.
We've heard that Fett will encounter some of his old "friends" in The Mandalorian spinoff (Bossk is also expected to appear), and the iconic mercenary does have history with Bane, who also faced-off with Fennec Shand in a recent episode of The Bad Batch. So, the man with no name-inspired gunslinger showing up in TBOBF would make sense.
We still don't know a whole lot about The Book of Boba Fett. The Mandalorian season 2 finale post-credits scene saw the infamous bounty hunter (Temuera Morrison) arrive to Jabba the Hutt's palace on Tatooine along with fellow mercenary Shand (Na Wen). After dispatching Bib Fortuna, Fett seemingly claimed Jabba's throne for himself, hinting that he also plans to take over the notorious gangster's crime syndicate.
Jon Favreau will produce TBOBF along with Dave Filoni and Robert Rodriguez, who helmed the Fett-centric chapter of The Mandalorian, "The Tragedy."
